Not Me

Millions of thoughts rolling through my mind
Dreams invaded my sleep
Awake too early
Laying in bed
Thinking but trying not to
Giving in and getting up
Sip on coffee until
I feel like I should get something done
Not really wanting to
Can't stay focused
Wanting company
not sure who
would even want my company
Because I am
Not Me


  1. You capture an unsettled time so poignantly here. But I think the people who know and love you would want to be in your company- even on your not me days. We all have those.

  2. This was sooooo good! Your words, your rhythm, everything... all contributed to making your poem "feel" like you described. I hope you have a better day tomorrow!

  3. Your poem perfectly portrays your feelings. Nice. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day! ~JudyK

  4. This is so full of feeling Kris. It may be my favorite piece of yours so far! Thank you for sharing it.
